Nuclear Throne
What exactly triggers the Throne walking down screen?
Just had a run ended by me ducking into one of the generator cubbyholes to grab ammo, the Throne walked down and cut me off leaving me no escape from the balls of death. I don't get it, thanks to Youtube I've seen the Throne fight over 100 times, I'm at the point where I've fought it myself a few times, never seen this happen once. What did I do wrong?

When you walk away from it the throne kind of comes closer so you wont be able to kill it easily
Right but it walked so far I had no escape path given the green waves of death I was facing, it boxed me in totally. Never seen that one before.

Oh well, live and learn I guess?
Are you playing Crystal? Shielding with Crystal seems to make enemies lose focus on you. I'd imagine the throne can't see you and walks forward to hunt you down.
It was with YV. I think I'll just chalk it up to "weirdness" as usually Throne doesn't walk that far so you can't get back out, well try the daily again tomorrow. Still looking for that darn first loop.

That actually happens quite a bit, but it's usually the Throne's secondary option in a situation like this.
Example: an Eyes player is in the empty generator space, dodging Throne's ball attacks. This is usually when the Throne decides to stop assaulting your health bar for 0.53 seconds to walk forward, effectively trapping you there so that you cannot get out, and you ♥♥♥♥ing die.
I've actually been behind the Throne a couple times, and believe me when I say that♥♥♥♥♥♥is pure death.

Okay so why does it never happen in any of the NT Youtube videos? What are they doing different? It's not like people aren't ducking into those spaces for ammo on every single video.

do you honestly think someone would upload a video where they get trapped behind the throne and die in 0.46 seconds


The correct answer is no, they wouldn't. They're only gonna upload their sick mlg loop 3 ultra shovel meme run so that they can look cool and good

Another fun fact: the throne can move sideways and zap you with the beam anywhere in the room if you hit it with enough explosive weapons... Happened to me a while back with Steroids, pretty damn surprising when you think the fight is almost over and you get grilled hugging the wall.

Right because there are no videos on youtube that end in a throne death post-loop now. They do not exist. I had no idea. Thanks for your very well thought out comment.

there are actually very few
the point is that you should be in there for as little time as you can
get in, get out, and the throne shouldn't be able to do anything
i reccomend plant for if you want to pick up the ammo they drop, otherwise it's actually better to just not go in there at all

also jesus ♥♥♥♥ it was just a joke
